Opening Reception: Carol Sogard & Anna Betbeze @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Sep 22 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Opening Reception: Carol Sogard & Anna Betbeze @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art  |  |  |

Join UMOCA on September 22 from 7-9 p.m. for the opening of two new exhibitions, Carol Sogard’s ‘Artifacts for the 23rd Century’, and Anna Betbeze’s ‘Dark Sun’. These exhibitions will run from September 22 to January 14.

Carol Sogard’s ‘Artifacts for the 23rd Century’ draws attention to the inordinate amount of plastic we consume daily. Through creative reconstruction of these single-use disposable materials, the works explore the use of plastic as product rather than simply a byproduct of our daily habit of consumption. The plastic grocery bag is a common side effect of consumerism. It lacks value beyond its limited use. Sogard’s process of collecting and reusing reclaimed bags and then manipulating their form and context reveals their tactile qualities rather than reaffirming their intended function. In doing so, she challenges the viewer to question the original intent and necessity of the bags and how their lifestyles contribute to the issue.
To learn more about Sogard and her work, visit www.carolsogard.com.

Anna Betbeze’s ‘Dark Sun’ uses fire, water, acids and colorful industrial-strength dyes to create large-scale abstract paintings on wool rugs. With vivid hues and battered sculptural surfaces, Betbeze’s works are layered and visceral. She describes this experience as “when seeing becomes breathing, stroking, tasting, and sound—often simultaneously.” By using natural processes, Betbeze’s work is a collaboration with nature—one where she establishes a starting point but accepts that eventually things will end up out of her control. By exploring the dichotomies of abjection/beauty, abandonment/care and destruction/creation, each hide-like painting gives the viewer a sense that they were found in their decayed but colorful state rather than made, allowing them to fluctuate anachronistically between historical and contemporary. Dark Sun also includes a new series of works on paper. Betbeze uses saturated pigments, staining, and layered media to make images that are just out of reach to the viewer. Like the recent eclipse where the moon negated the sun, providing a moment of darkness and reflection on our relationship to light, Betbeze’s paintings are born from a simulate negation. Using destruction as a force for creation, what remains are works that can be sensed as well as seen.

Elfwyn’s Saga @ Val A. Browning Center
Sep 22 @ 7:00 pm
Elfwyn's Saga @ Val A. Browning Center |  |  |

Inspired by Viking lore, Elfwyn’s Saga presents an enthralling tale of magic, greed, and heroism. During the early settlement of Iceland, a girl named Elfwyn is born blind after a curse is placed on her family. Guided and protected by the mysterious Hidden Folk, she learns to rely on other senses to perceive the world around her. When a rival Viking clan uses a treacherous magic crystal to sow the seeds of discord among her family, Elfwyn’s gift of clear perception is all that stands between her community and its self-annihilation. An imaginative musical score and hundreds of dazzling costumes help the young dancers of the Children’s Dance Theatre bring this spectacular story to the stage.

Ion by Euripides @ Utah Cultural Celebration Center Amphitheater

Ion by Euripides @ Utah Cultural Celebration Center Amphitheater |  |  |

Ion, by Euripides
Infidelity, betrayal, and a chase to the death. At the end of her child-bearing years, the Athenian Creusa seeks an answer as to why she is unable to bear children with her husband Xuthus. In her quest for answers, she finds herself at the temple of Apollo where she meets and converses with a stranger. What she discovers about this stranger will change the rest of her life. Often considered one of the most beautifully written play by Euripides, the Classical Greek Theatre Festival and Westminster College are proud to continue the tradition of keeping Greek theatre alive in Utah for more than 30 years.

This performance will be held in the outdoor amphitheater and will include wine and beer sales, a brief pre-show lecture at 7:00 PM, and a post event meet and greet reception with the cast.
